Today my DIL, and husband had off from work! My grandson was also out of school for MLK's birthday! It was a miracle we were all off on the same day! (It rarely happens, except MAYBE once or twice a year)!
Well, we decided to visit a really neat wetland that has a boardwalk elevated over the water... It is called Wakodahatchee Wetlands. This link will take you to a virtual tour.
This was my third time going. We saw alligators, ducks, so may birds, I can't begin to tell you, turtles, and a Marsh rabbit. If you click on the link, you can click on the sidebar there to see all of the birds that have been spotted out there. The grandkids loved it.
One bad thing happened. I was holding Emily (age 2.5) up to see a turtle directly below in the water, and she somehow let go of her pacifier and it fell into the water right in front of the turtle. Then another turtle swam up to the surface (all this while, Emily is mortified that her pacifier has dropped into the water), and don't you know the larger turtled bit onto the pacifier just as a baby would, and he swam under the boardwalk! Emily was so upset...it was sad and funny at the same time. Of course now I am worried we may have caused damage to some form of wildlife with that plastic/rubber thing. I hope none of our animal friends suffer from my carelessness. Of course, it could have just as easily been my glasses falling off my face. Luckily there was a replacement paci in the car....
I had gone without my darn camera!!!!! (Pictures are from Wikipedia). We did have a last minute surprise visiter fly in...a Roseate Spoonbill. She was gorgeous...very pink in color...a real treat!
